I was browsing for BP Tanker photos, when I came across this site.
At last, a site worth trawling through - and seemingly an interesting bunch of subscribers.
Sailed on British Gunner, Star, Engineer, Destiny, Victory and Comet - and worked on the engines for the Admiral when she was being built in Barrow.
I'm looking forward to exploring more!

Welcome aboard from northern East Yorkshire, Richard.
You've certainly come to the right place to find BP shipmates.
Find your way around the ship, get to know the crew and have a good trip.

Richard,
Welcome to the site.
As an Engineer, whose bad books were you in to get 2 Italians???
Kind regards,
John.

You might have known my late brother James Cartwright. He was a chief engineer for some time.
